Project description

Lower the barrier to innovation for customers/companies in het field of electro-winning and electro-separation techniques for complex, low-grade raw materials and residues by offering access to one-of-a-kind, key infrastructures and services organised in a network of top-level universities, research institutes and companies. A single point of contact will be installed to act as coordinator or hub of the network to set-up, manage, operate and promote the network in a transparent and efficient way. In addition the coordinator will install a follow-up process to guide and connect customers to other KAVA activities. De-silo expertise by initiating community building and facilitating a mutual learning process among the partners by sharing best practice at workshops, meetings and through collaborative projects, leading to excellence of the network at the European and global stage. Stimulate smart specialisation by the partners by making an inventory of the available infrastructure within the network, the KIC and Europe and by organising interactions with stakeholders to define their needs and identify gaps in key infrastructure to be filled by the network/KIC in follow-up projects or investments.
